I was lucky enough to win a lovely giveaway a little while ago...Iveth over at Madamoiselle Cranky Pants is the lovely lady who hosted it. The prize was some beautiful bunting...
I think it will go in M's room, she is in need of a bit of extra TLC. Extra homework in school and a re-jig of the pecking order in the school yard has led to some new pressures, which she is finding a bit hard.
Almost as good as the prize itself is the card that came in the parcel..it is a postcard of one of Iveth's pieces...
It was this image that I clicked on whilst browsing Etsy, which led me to Iveth's shop, and then her blog and then to facebook and eventually to this prize!
Iveth makes the most wonderful jewellery, which she sells, like I said on Etsy, under the name The Angry Weather.
And to top it all off it was all beautifully packaged...
Iveth had in fact written a post about this but thankfully I didn't see it!...I loved the element of surprise.
This parcel was all the sweeter this morning because I had just driven 20 miles (for 30 mins) in the pouring rain with one of my two and a half year olds screaming to the point of almost vomiting...all because Daddy didn't come with us!
There really is no reasoning with two year olds!
Maybe one day soon I will tell you about our recent visit to have the little one's eyes checked...but I need to recover first! The only consolation is that the eye Dr told me that one of her kids bit a total stranger on the thigh when he was 2!
It could always be worse!
Have a nice day everyone...and thanks Iveth!
